Social Value update: Seddon Construction
Social Value is of vital importance to the Hub and it’s Framework partners and this shows in the quantity and quality that we and our partners deliver. Today we take a look at the great work Seddon has done contributing towards social value in recent times, beginning with the impressive numbers below.
On Friday 6th November, volunteers from Seddon spent a day volunteering at an event organised by the North West Construction Hub (NWCH), for the food charity, The Bread and Butter Thing (TBBT).
TBBT is a charity that aims to make makes life more affordable for people on a low income, providing a deeply discounted food service for their members. They currently deliver approximately 20 tonnes of food, per week to communities in Greater Manchester, equating to roughly 45,000 meals per week.
The Seddon volunteers were joined by volunteers from work Morgan Sindall and Kier, and tasks on the day included off-loading trucks, packing food parcels, and delivering parcels directly to local community hubs.
“Supporting community initiatives is something we are very passionate about at Seddon, not only because it helps those who need it most, but it’s also an enriching activity for the volunteers. Our people got to work with the volunteers from different contractors, share experiences and discuss how the group,
by working together, could make more of an impact.” Vanessa Barlow, CSR and Internal Communications Manager, Seddon Construction
